Challenges of selling on multiple marketplaces
Solving the eCommerce Multichannel Inventory Issue
Managing inventory across marketplaces as you scale up your business is difficult. Doing so while providing your customers with a consistent and positive user experience is even more challenging. Luckily, there are a plethora of tools available to business owners today the help replace manual processes that become operational burdens as you begin to gain traction on many online stores. For example, modern-day eCommerce management software can replace your manual processes entirely, allowing for automated inventory and stock updates across all your stores.
How does it work? With API integrations like this Amazon integration, when a user onboards their business to a new software such as ChannelGrabber, they connect the dots between all the platforms they use. Let’s say you’re selling on eBay, Amazon, and a Shopify webstore. You’d simply integrate each store’s API with the software. Then when an order is processed, your inventory will automatically update in all other locations within five minutes or less.
